The Fronteira project was born from the desire to cause dislocations and opportunities of free cinema experience and expand these artistic enjoyment opportunities to border areas where many worldviews meet, different historical times get in conflict, producing disputes of different groups , redefining boundaries, violence and resistance. In the festival scope, the documentary stands out as it produces the camera instability with those it shoots, and those who work with it. It is believed as the borders of language. It also demarcates the experimental film as a bifurcation tradition, superposition of narrative and non-narrative experiences. The idea of the human frontier unfolds in cinema experience, above all, the film facing the industry, made in different parts of the world, but also deeply marked by the territorial dimension.
